The children have done a spectacular job re-creating a small Anglo Saxon village, using what they know about Saxon homes and what they had in them.
As part of the UEA research Park’s work into antibiotic resistance, Year 5 and 6 have made a film which explores how ABX work, and how they should be used safely!
We entered the film into a county wide competition, and we WON!
As well as the prestige of being film making champions, we also have won a free, all expenses paid trip to the science museum in LONDON!!!!!
Have a watch of the film, I’m sure you’ll see the skill in which the children acted and brought the bacteria and microbes to life!
Well done to Mile Cross Primary too, who created another spectacular film and will be visiting the museum too.
On the 22nd of March, many eager adults joined us to hear how our preparation for SATs testing has been going.
The children were ofcourse fantastic; our visitors mentioned that they were:
- chatty and knowledgable
- personable and confident
- well prepared and pleasant!
Well done, you confident bunch!
This is a very busy term so please make sure that you are reading the newsletters and emails that are sent home; we don’t want you to miss anything.
SATs for our Year 2 children will be completed throughout the month of May and the Year 6 children have their SATs in school 14th May – 17th May, further information has already been sent home to families. If your child is in either Year 2 or 6 please do not take your child out of school during these time periods. Following on from the success of last years arrangements for the whole school during SATs week for Year 6 children, we will use the same systems; look out for a letter nearer the time.
Year 1 children will also have their phonics screening check during the week of 11th June. This will also include Year 2 children that did not ‘pass’ last year. Please see you child’s teacher for any further information.
As always we appreciate all of your support, if you need any further information please don’t hesitate to pop in and see us.
Children visited Norfolk Records Office to find out what effect the second world war had on the village of Marsham. The children handled real artefacts from WW2, aswell as looking at original documents. These gave us intriguing snippets of information about the village during this period for example the Parish Council giving permission for the home guard to exercise on Marsham Heath – But not to dig any trenches! .
Over the last ten weeks children from Kestrels class have been finding out what it was like to live through a war. To try to answer our philosophical question “Who are the real losers when we go to war” they researched the major events of the second world war and then interviewed six people from the village.
Each person came in to school and spent an hour with the children explaining details and stories from their own childhood. We took the most moving or interesting parts from each conversation and the children used these clips as the basis for some animations. We wanted to bring the stories to life and make sure they are not forgotten or lost. You can view the finished animation below. We hope you enjoy it.
